The Aug. 16 meeting of the Photographic Society of Chattanooga will feature a 3D photography and video experience presented by Andrea Shetley and Lee Pratt.
Ms. Shetley and Mr. Pratt will present a spectacular, fun-filled evening of 3D photography and videos. This show consists of the top entrants and winners of an international 3D photography competition (complete with music and narration), several slide shows (including Andrea’s recent trip to Australia), and videos from around the world. This entertaining 3-D experience features some of the newest 3D technologies and is in digital format. Attendees will also benefit from a display, demonstration, and discussion of the equipment and technologies of 3D, and learn how easy and fun it is for everyone to use.
Ms. Shetley is the owner of a computer, photography, and creative arts services company, and has been involved in photography for almost 40 years and 3D photography for the last 15 years. She is a member of the Fayetteville-Lincoln County Arts League and its special interest group, the Fayetteville Photography Cub. She is also a member and past president of the Huntsville Photographic Society and a member of several 3D organizations worldwide. Ms. Shetley has received several honors and recognitions from the Photographic Society of America for her contributions to supporting, promoting, and teaching photography. Her interests are mostly nature-oriented, with special interests in macro, flowers, and insects (especially praying mantises).
Lee Pratt is a native Texan, but has lived in the Huntsville, Ala., area for over 40 years. He is a retired physicist and electronics engineer. His interest in 3D photography started in the 1950s with his grandfather's hand stereoscope and his brother's View-Master viewer and reels. In the 1970s he started taking his own stereo (3D) photography, collecting 3D equipment, and entering 3D photographic exhibitions. Mr. Pratt is a member of several 3D photography organizations around the world and the Huntsville Photographic Society. His favorite photographic views are of scenic natural areas unspoiled by humans. But he also does table top, computer, and other experimental 3D work
The presentation will begin at 7 p.m. at the St. John United Methodist Church, 3921 Murray Hills Drive, Chattanooga, Tn. 37416. For more information, call 423 344-5643 or e-mail Dan Jeter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
